Mass shooters are supposed to be suburban American kids. In statistical reality, if counting mass shooters by the number of victims, most are gang members in urban areas. And even the conventional concept of the mass shooter, a disgruntled or unstable individual opening fire at a school, workplace, or general area to cause as much harm as possible without a criminal or political motive, the truth is more complicated than the media’s narrative would have it.
That’s why the media is reluctant to discuss it.
Like this latest July 4th mass shooting plot by illegal aliens.
Two illegal immigrants were arrested in a mass shooting plot at the Richmond, Virginia, July Fourth celebration.
“A hero citizen picked up the phone and overheard a conversation there was a mass shooting being planned here in the city of Richmond, Virginia,” Richmond Chief of Police Gerald Smith said Wednesday.
Two illegal immigrants, 52-year-old Julio Alvarado-Dubon and 38-year-old Rolman Balacarcel, were arrested and charged with being a non-U.S. citizens in possession of a gun after police uncovered a plot that the duo planned a mass shooting at Richmond’s July 4 celebration Monday.
Why would two illegal aliens have so much firepower? The men have been described as being from Guatemala.
The story would appear to be tailor-made for the crisis-du-jour of mass shootings, but the media’s interest has been minimal because the alleged plotters don’t fit the profile.
Court documents note bond was set at $15,000 for Alvarado-Dubon on Wednesday, but it was unclear if he had been released. The documents say he has lived in the Richmond area for three years and works full time in the construction industry.
Where does an illegal working construction amass the cash for an arsenal that big?
Smith addressed reports that one of the suspects has been deported several times and continued to re-enter the country illegally, saying that it was “frustrating” that a person could continue to break the law and have an opportunity to still plan out a mass murder.
